Tom Baker (Master's student, co-advised with Ross Virginia) is examining the recession of the Laurentide Ice Sheet near Thunder Bay, Ontario, and the timing of the eastward drainage of Glacial Lake Agassiz.
Samuel Beal (PhD student, co-advised with Brian Jackson) is conducting research on trace metals in recent Peruvian lake sediments. Below is a photo of Sam (right) and Justin practicing with the Universal Percussion corer on Post Pond in Lyme, NH (photo credit: J. Gartner).
Laura Levy (PhD student) is conduting research on late-glacial and Holocene glacial extents in the Scoresby Sund region of East Greenland. Below is a photo of Laura near the Greenland Ice Sheet margin near Kangerlussuaq.
Justin Stroup (PhD Student) is conducting research on late Holocene fluctuations of Quelccaya Ice Cap in Peru. Below is a photo of Justin (right) and Andrew on their way into Quelccya Ice Cap, Peru in 2009.
Hanul Kim (Dartmouth '12; Presidential Scholar) is using cosmogenic nulclide surface-exposure dating to determine the age of the "Doublewide" moraine of Quelccaya Ice Cap.
Laura Reynolds (Dartmouth '11; Senior Honors Thesis) is examining the late Pleistocene geology of the Hanover-Lyme area, New Hampshire. Below is a photo of Laura (second from right) on the Friends of the Pleistocene trip to the Hanover-Claremont area in 2010 (photo credit: W. Thompson).
Florence Ling (Dartmouth '11; Presidential Scholar) developed the physical properties of bog cores from Peru.
Andrew Smith (Dartmouth '10; Senior Honors Thesis) developed a record of late Pleistocene through Holocene environmental and climatic conditions from the Occom Pond cores. He also examined the history of Glacial Lake Hitchcock in the Upper Valley. Andrew is going to graduate school at the University of Texas, Jackson School of Geosciences in Fall 2010. Below is a photo of Andrew explaining his thesis research to the "Friends of the Pleistocene" fieldtrip in June, 2010 (photo credit: W. Thompson).
